2 MOOSE HARVEST REPORT 216 Summary Each year, moose licence quotas are established for each Wildlife Management Zone open to moose hunting. The moose licence quota does not indicate the desired moose harvest level; rather, it indicates the number of licences needed to reach the desired moose harvest level. Licence quotas are affected by several factors, most importantly the estimate of moose population size, the amount of unregulated moose harvest, and the success rate of hunters in the regulated hunt. Changes in those factors often cause moose licence quotas to fluctuate up and down from year-toyear, even when moose populations and harvest targets are stable or increasing, as has been the case in the past few years. The resident moose licence quota in 216 was 4,643 licences, which is a slight increase from 215. A total of 61,487 NB residents, 3,177 non-residents, and 118 outfitters and guides submitted applications to the moose licence draw in 216; 4,643 resident, 5 non-resident, and 5 outfitter and guide applicants were successful. A total of 73% of resident moose licence holders chose to designate another resident hunter to accompany them on their licence. The total registered moose harvest in 216 was 3,435 moose. Resident hunters harvested 3,357 moose, while non-residents took 78 moose. The overall hunter success rate was 74%. Moose hunting season is set in regulation to be the last Tuesday-Saturday of September, so the season timing varies each year according to the calendar. In 216, this resulted in a season of September 2-24 th. 217 Synopsis New Brunswick s moose population appears to be stable in most areas of the province, particularly in the north-western part of the province. Moose population declines are evident in parts of southern NB. The resident moose licence quota for 217 is XXXX licences. Although the moose herd appears to be relatively healthy, it is difficult to accurately assess due to the unknown quantity and distribution of animals being removed by unregulated harvest. The regulated licence allocation must be conservative to ensure sustainability of the moose population until a moose harvest and reporting system can be established that accommodates existing aboriginal and treaty rights.

11 DEER HARVEST REPORT Summary The 216 deer hunting season had a harvest of 5,386 deer, a 23% increase over 215. The Antlerless Deer Permits had been reduced by 2% to 1,8 permits for 216. The winter of 215 was one of the worst winters the past 25 years, so the antlerless deer permits had been reduced to help grow the deer herd. The winter of 216 was milder than average and allowed for good fawn winter survival, thus resulting in a healthy pulse of yearlings into the 216 deer season. This was evident in the fact that 44% of the overall harvest was comprised of yearling bucks. Resident hunters had a harvest success rate of 11%, while non-residents had slightly better harvest success rates of 17%. Hunters with Antlerless Deer Permits had better success rates of 37% because of their ability to harvest a deer of either sex. During the gun season, the harvest was spread with 28% of the harvest occurring in the first week, and between 2 to 25% in the remaining 3 weeks. There were 5 deer (1% of the harvest) taken on the three Sundays that were open for hunting during the season. A total of 89% of the harvest were bucks, 9% adult females, and 2% fawns. In 216 there were 1,8 Antlerless Deer Permits made available; 45 fewer than in 215. A total of 7,743 resident hunters applied for the computerized tag draw, of which 1,85 were successful. Hunters with antlerless deer tags harvested 672 deer in the 216 season. Of the successful antlerless permit holders, 61% harvested antlerless deer and 3% harvested adult bucks. A total of 46,381 residents and 333 non-residents purchased licences to hunt white-tailed deer. Total licence sales were 46,714, which was 2,125 fewer than 215 sales; 8% below the long-term average. New Brunswick residents harvested 99% of the total deer kill, while non-residents harvested 1%. 217 Synopsis The NB deer herd had a healthy growth spurt in 216, due to the good winter survival. The bump in the number of yearlings in 216 will shift into a bump of 2 year olds in 217, and hopefully hunters will see more larger racked bucks this season. The winter of 217 was about equal to the 1 year average, with about 15% mortality. This was a harsher winter than 216 (11%) and the additional mortality may curb some population growth. Current analysis generally predicts a prehunt population similar to that of last year. This year's report includes provincial deer population estimates since 197. These estimates are based on hunter effort and hunter success rates with limited statistical strength. These estimates should be used as trend indicators than as total population size. These figures may change in future years as models improve.
